2013 Spin-in Countdown
Days | Hours | Mins. | Secs.
The Bothwell Spin-in is attempting to collect enough threads in a FRIENDSHIP BALL so that it reaches around the world and for this purpose we ask you to send your thread to be added to our FRIENDSHIP BALL.
Please help to make this project a success and let us share our Cultures for Friendship, Love and Peace. This idea is only a small contribution towards PEACE but it is better than guns.
At the equator the world spans 40 074 km, which means that we will need 40 074 people to send one metre of thread to acheive our aim. We are aiming to span the Roaring Forties which passes through Tasmania
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Collect from all your FRIENDS, especially children, a thread of any sort eg. Silk, cotton, wool, string or any fibre at least a metre in length and wind these threads on a MESSAGE STICK. The stick can be made of any material. Write your message for PEACE on the stick and tie the threads you collect together and wind them on your message stick. We will display these sticks with our FRIENDSHIP BALL.
List the name and place of each participant and length of their piece of thread on the application form. Please be aware that all threads coming into Australia must be clean and free of dirt and seeds. Send threads and sticks together with names to:
PO BOX 97, BOTHWELL, TASMANIA, AUSTRALIA 7030
The ball is a circle, no begining, no end.
It keeps us together as a circle of friends.
The treasure inside you cannot see.
Is the treasure of FRIENDSHIP you granted to me.
